Two things: 1) People are looney fucking tunes. 2) We love to watch them.

The Final Member actually looks like quite the interesting documentary; Sigurdur “Siggi” Hjartarson, founder and curator of the world’s only penis museum, has collected penises (I really want to type “peni”) from 93 species of animals—including everything from whales to field mice. But sadly, his collection had one (reportedly) huge omission: the elusive human. Before he became too elderly or in poor health, Hjartarson hoped he could complete the collection, and what do you know, up popped a couple of whackadoodies volunteers. Suddenly, the two men—one an American in his sixties, and the other, an 95 year old Icelandic man—were in a very strange race. In fact, one of the men is willing to have his terrifyingly named goods lopped off. Yes Pajibans, you really, really need to watch this entirely bananas trailer.

Directed by Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math, The Final Member debuted at the 2012 Fantastic Fest to good reviews, and we’ll finally get it in limited release (Drafthouse Films) and VOD April 18th.

    The museum and Husavik itself are quirky enough, though I've heard the museum moved to Rejkjavik, but I seem to recall them getting an old (dead) guy's uh, specimen a few years ago and the thing didn't preserve right. Can't imagine lopping off a body part to have it "immortalized" while I was still alive and instead the thing rots out in a jar.

  • My Latin is rusty(also non-existent) but I know a person who knows Latin and they said the correct plural of 'penis' is 'penes.' They also said 'You called me at 2330 to ask me that? Don't you have anything better to do with your time?' but that's neither here nor there.

    Thank you for fighting the good fight for etymological research.

  • It's what I do, I'm a giver.

  • BlackRabbit

    By a coincidence, there's a museum looking for just that kind of person.....

  • They wouldn't have enough shelf space for -my- contribution.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I'm pretty sure that was Cindy's weirdest headline ever on Pajiba. Which is really saying something.

  • Wrestling Fan

    Nobody wants to see mine while it's still attached to me, so I doubt it would be any better were the li'l guy removed from me.

  • bleujayone

    Any man who would voluntarily part with his member is sad a little prick I wouldn't want any part of seeing on display anyway.

    Now show me the penis of a man who successfully (or even unsuccessfully) fought off a thousand people with his bare hands in his attempts to keep what God gave him firmly attached right where it was and I just might consider giving him a posthumous salute.

    Especially if he could throw it over his shoulder like a Continental soldier...and use it like a baseball bat.

  • janeite1900

    And apparently there are no, or very few women in the film at all. Phallocentric?

  • The Internet has ruined my ability to tell whether or not this is sarcasm.

  • Berry

    Either way, it's funny.

    The American guy is clearly a whackadoodle, no doubt about it. The elderly Icelandic gentleman is, from what I can see from the trailer, not whackadoodlesque.

    I am torn about whether I would ever want to see that museum. I am pretty sure I would be unable to resist.

    Sadly (or not) it was closed cor the season when I passed through, oh, I think the town is Huvik? Something like that. I did take a picture of the sign. That might also have been the town with Iceland 's premier country-western bar

    That's fascinating. I want to go to Iceland. Did you like it?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I loved it. I was there for 2 weeks right before they had their currency crisis in 2008. Reykjavik for a few days, and then rented a car to drive around for 10. Did Vik, Myvatn, Akureyri...and found my picture.

    This is why the internet exists - not just cats and porn. It looks so innocuous.
